Did you know that the theme park was invented in Indiana? And that the #1 Wooden Roller Coaster on the Planet is in Indiana – plus the World’s Longest Water Coaster?
All of these “firsts” are rolled into one special place—Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari. Located in the charming hamlet of Santa Claus in southern Indiana, this theme park/water park combo offers families a getaway with all sorts of perks.
Did you ever think a theme park would give away soft drinks? And not charge for parking – or sunscreen or use of inner tubes in the water park? No wonder Consumers Digest magazine named Holiday World and Splashin’ Safari the Nation’s Top Value Park.
New in 2012: the great and powerful Mammoth. This immense beast once ruled the safari … and now he rules Splashin’ Safari! Our Wildebeest claimed the title of World’s Longest Water Coaster when it opened in 2010. But Wildebeest bows to the mighty Mammoth and turns over the title. For Mammoth is taller, longer and wider.
With all kinds of live entertainment, visits with Santa, shopping, fun food, and skill games, Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari offer loads of family fun all summer long!

This is my favorite park to go to in the summer. I have been many times over the years and it never gets old. the rides are great, the place is clean and neat.
I love the free drinks and sunscreen...one can never have enough of those. :)
People are kind and helpful. and its not too crowded where you waste to much time in line! and the water park is a MUST! :)
we visted this last summer and had a great time. I think its great that they offer the free softdrinks all the time! We had lunch there and found that the prices were really awesome comparted to lunch at other parks. The lines are also short (we went mid July). Another great thing is that they have something to do for all ages my 2-year old loved it.
Yes its holiday themed in parts which is kinda weird in the summer, but the kids LOVE it. So much fun and so many free extras you cant help but to fall in love with the place! Free soda? Free sunscreen? Yes please. Really planned with a family in mind! Attractions, shows, things to look at. What better to do on a summer day?
Holiday Word is so much fun, so many rides to have fun with and tons of great eating places. The water park is great with all their new rides and the wave pool is to much fun. I love roller coasters and they have some of the best. I also love their free drinks and free sunscreen to, you can't beat free drinks. This is a great place to go for a family or for just a group of friends to. You can't go wrong with Holiday World.
We can't say enough about Holiday World! Everything about it makes it an incredible family outing. The park offers several roller coasters (all wooden) for those who enjoy that kind of thing. Many of their roller coasters are rated some of the best in the world in different categories (length, speed, thrill, etc.)
They also have several 'kiddie rides' for those bringing little ones along.
Their water park is comparable to that of many other larger parks around and now features a water coaster, the midwest's only! The park is well spaced out, so it doesn't seem packed, but nothing seems 'too far' away.
Even grandparents have been known to enjoy the food and little knick knack stores (similar to Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO).
The theme of the park says it all, you get all of the holidays at holiday world. You can by Christmas ornaments and even see Santa Claus daily in Christmas land, you can eat a full Thanksgiving dinner (that rivals grandmas) in the thanksgiving part of the park, and Halloween is equipped with eerie music playing through its quarters.
On top of all else, food is just as affordable as eating at a fast food restaurant nearby (and is better quality) and soft drinks are free... not just with meals, all day long! (And you probably won't have to wait in much of a line to get one... you feel your own cup in their 'oasis', which are scattered in several places all around the park.)
Great value! Very clean! Lots of fun!
This was a great little theme park! It's a little smaller than a six flags, but it's also cheaper, and more family friendly. It's kind of in the middle of nowhere, but worth a drive of an hour or two. There are plenty of rides for young and old alike, and the lines are short enough that if your kids are too young to ride one you want to ride, you can take turns with your spouse! There are also free fountain drinks and sunscreen- nice perks especially on a hot summer day!
This was a great family park. There were rides for everyone. There were also some shows to enjoy. For one price we also got to go to the waterpark. This was a very nice park. We loved that we could decide how long and when to go do rides vs waterpark. The staff was nice and the park was clean. Free soft drinks all day. Yes free. I do wish the park was not so far away from everything. We had to drive a long way to eat after leaving park if we didn't want Subway. Great value.
Holiday World is a wonderful, family-friendly park in Southern Indiana. One of their best features is that you get two parks (the amusement park and the water park) for one price. The water park alone is worth the price, as they have slides, thrill rides and a water coaster in addition to more kid-friendly water stuff. They also offer a "Heroes Discount" for for military (past and present), firefighters, police and EMS.
